Hey everybody, as you can see im new to this site, ive been busy reading all previous threads.
I have shopped around at different packages and found the people at realgap.co.uk alot more helpful then other firms. I plan to go too Sydney in around end of june, beginning of july.
My only problem is i dont like being alone, so just wondering whether anyone else is going out there on like a working holiday visa around that time.
And if not then where would you say the best places were to go to find other backpackers/friendly people :P
Any response would be much appreciated!
Just read your message - have you thought of/heard about Oz Intro (www.ozintro.co.uk)? I am flying out on the 15th July to join them on the 17th July. You stay with them for a week as part of a group and after that week the world is your oyster! I have found them really helpful and think it's a good way of meeting people if you don't want to travel alone. I am going on my own and feel much better about it knowing I WILL be meeting up with people.
However, I know people that have travelled alone and have got on fine because you meet so many people.
Hope this information is useful!!!
yes thats great thankyou very much, can i ask if you're booked to go on the 15th, how much approximately is your flight? im well excited about going just nervous at the same point aswell!! x
Yeah I'm all booked to go! I fly from Manchester on the 15th July and arrive early hours of 17th where I will be met by a member of staff of Oz Intro. My flight was £927 which I think is quite good as it's the height of the season here and more expensive. I went on holiday to Oz for 3 weeks in November '04 and my flight was about £1,070 then so £927 for 12 months isn't bad!!!
To book with Oz intro it's £399 but you get all sorts included and it's peace of mind knowing you will be with people.
once again thankyou very much for your help ive just had a look around the ozintro.com website and i have never seen it before but its almost half the price of realgap.co.uk and offers exactly the same package! thank you for your help
Ozintro is a good start as thet offer things that you'll want to do anyway so you might as well pay up front and get a discount. If you do go it alone you will have no problem meeting people as literally thousands of travellers arrive here every month. In fact its almost impossible not to meet other travellers.
That's no problem. Glad I could help!!!
